Nook Tablet $199 Today Only – $79 Nook Touch Refurbs are Back


Nook Tablet

The Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet is on sale today only via Barnes and Noble’s eBay store for $199 when you use code CNOOKDEAL during checkout (update: they changed it so you don’t have to enter the code, and it looks like the deal is continuing into Friday). That’s $50 off the regular price of $249. And it is new, not refurbished.

This is the best deal on the Nook Tablet to date; now is the time to pull the trigger if you want one. B&N offered $25 off earlier this month when purchased with a MasterCard, and there’s also the ongoing deal for getting $50 off with a year subscription to People Magazine, but today’s deal is clearly the best.

A $199 Nook Tablet is one of the top picks for a 7″ tablet, but it is locked into Barnes and Noble for all apps and books, so you either have to accept that or instead root the Nook Tablet and install the Android Market.

Custom ROMS are just about to become available as well. CM7 is very close to a public release and CM9 is getting close.

The Nook Tablet comes with 16GB of memory, Wi-Fi, a microSD card slot, a dual-core 1GHz processor, it has a 7″ 1024 x 600 IPS screen, battery life of 8 to 11.5 hours, and 1 GB of RAM.

In a head-to-head competition with the Kindle Fire, both priced at $199, the choice isn’t easy. Check out my Kindle Fire vs Nook Tablet review if you need help deciding.

In other Nook news, the Nook Touch is once again available refurbished for $79 from B&N’s eBay store. It had disappeared for quite a while but now it’s back for those wanting to save and extra $20 over a new one.

  1. The auction was ended at “Feb 16, 2012 14:16:56 PST”. Over 770 units were sold. I guess B&N gained enough new customers to end the auction before the end of the day.

    • The deal is still ongoing as of 9:50 pm EST. I changed the link url to this new page for a $199 Nook Tablet, no code required, still through B&N’s eBay storefront. B&N or eBay (not sure who) often annoyingly change the page when running promotions like this. Thanks for pointing it out so I could update for others.

    • The clock at eBay is 17 hours so it looks like they are extending it into tomorrow, maybe because they didn’t sell as may as expected. 770 is actually pretty pitiful; and the new page is at 280. Considering all the press this deal is getting I would have expected those numbers to be a lot higher.

  2. Hi Nathan , first I want to thank you for your great work on this site. You are very active guy, I must admit that I am checking your site every day, and get a lot of help from you, I did not have the time to thank you , but this is the time, I watched your reviews about nook ( every video ^_^ ) and also rooting , am Egyptian guy , and i am writing blogs on this site http://www.klamtech.com/

    I want to translate some of your good reviews and post them at our blog in Arabic, we have a little growing community of e reader owners, as you know the big problem of e-readers that not all of them support Arabic except in pdf through embedding fonts, browsing web and system does not have Arabic support.

    I am interesting about adding Arabic support to the nook touch, if you don’t mind to help me about that I will appreciate that. ( PLEASE LET ME KNOW : through email ).

    thank you for caring.

    • Good to hear I could help. It must not have been easy getting a Nook in Egypt. I wouldn’t know anything about adding Arabic support, though.
